Hi everyone,

A question for all those whose freeze their cakes: Can you bake, torte, crumbcoat and then freeze?

My husband has surprised me with a few days away (thursday to Saturday) for our 2nd wedding anniversary, BUT I have a cake order for the Sunday afternoon.

My mum will be at my house with the children so she could take the cake out of the freezer in time for it to be defrosted, but I would find it easier if I only had to do the buttercream and fondant layers on Sat when I get back...

Is this feasible?

Has anyone frozen a cake after decorated with buttercream? If so, what would be the best way to thaw it out? Covered or uncovered?

Phew, good to know! How long will it take to defrost completely and should I leave it wrapped or unwrap it?
You girls/guys are stars!
